Increase in postpartum bleeding.

I'm 6 days postpartum. Yesterday, I noticed an increase in the amount I'm bleeding along with some mild cramping in my lower stomach and back. Is this normal? It's not enough that I would rush to the OB, and honestly I was bleeding so little before it surprised me.

I think it may be due to the fact that my husband went back to work and I'm home alone caring forour newborn and toddler. Just wanted to see what other people think.
